Tianjin Airlines (formerly Grand China Express Air) is a regional airline headquartered in
Tianjin, People's Republic of China, operating domestic scheduled passenger and cargo
flights out of Tianjin Binhai International Airport. The airline was established in 2004 in
an effort to merge the major aviation assets of Hainan Airlines, China Xinhua Airlines,
Chang'an Airlines and Shanxi Airlines. As of 2010, only 13 destinations are served
(excluding those operated on behalf of Hainan Airlines), though by 2012, the airline intends
to fly on more than 450 routes linking at least 90 cities.
